Item of the Year
The item of the year ... 2008 ... ta daa! .. goes to Hawaiian Tap, The Water Bottle. Having registered the name Hawaiian Tap more than four years ago so that we could do a bottled water of Hawaiian Tap water, making fun of Dasani and Aquafina and the like, and because we have the best tap water in the world -- we finally put the name to work on water bottles so everyone can "bottle your own."
It's a badge -- just like the eco bags you carry around in your car but forget to bring into the store, ending up with more plastic bags. Here's to a year where we remember to bottle our own, and remember to bring those bags inside the store with us.
A green and peaceful planet! imagine that...
